Play-off pandemonium has swept Falkirk after last night’s thrilling 3-2 win over Hibs set up a two-legged meeting with Kilmarnock.

Tickets went on sale shortly after full-time via Falkirk FC’s ticket website, but some fans struggled to gain access as the site was swamped by fans eager to secure their seat for Thursday night’s first-leg at Falkirk Stadium.

And the enthusiasm didn’t wane today as a huge queue of Bairns snaked around the west stand and along the back of the north end of the arena.

Some Falkirk fans reported waiting four hours to get their hands on big-match briefs while bottled water had to be drafted in for the crowd waiting in the sweltering temperatures.

Falkirk host Kilmarnock on Thursday evening, before heading to Rugby Park - scene of their relegation in 2010 – on Sunday afternoon.
